Wipro launches medical gateway solution

Bangalore: Wipro Technologies, the global IT services business of Wipro Ltd, on Tuesday announced the launch of a medical gateway solution.

The solution, powered by Intel Atom processor, would enable improved care co-ordination between patients and their care providers and help overcome some of the challenges faced in traditional care delivery processes, the Bangalore-headquartered company said in a statement.

The medical gateway is an intelligent embedded platform, which enables users such as patients, doctors and other health care professionals to monitor, track and manage health care information from a remote location, it said.

“The solution enables real-time clinical review by automatically capturing vital data from multiple medical devices such as blood pressure monitors, glucose meters, pedometers and weighing scales available with the patients," New York Stock Exchange-listed Wipro said.

Medical devices can connect to the gateway solution through wired and wireless technologies using both standard based and proprietary protocols, to provide real time medical data, video and image transfer from a patient to doctor and in turn from a doctor to doctor, it was stated.

This technology provides doctors the ability to evaluate patient care against quality measures for a variety of health conditions, the statement added.
